Last May 25th marked the opening ceremony of the Philippine Fashion Week 2008, at the SMX Hall 3, Mall of Asia, Manila. The theme of this year’s fashion week, now on its second year, is “Glimpses : A Dawn of a New Decade.” It was my first time to attend Fashion Week, as I was very excited, anticipating, and waiting for Ford Supermodel, and Filipino pride Charo Ronquillo grace the runway!
Aside from my first time to see a runway ( which is going to be the runway for the best in the Philippine Fashion Industry from tomorrow til Tuesday that is, ), I was also able to see beautiful makeup being strutted on the runway. Thanks to Artistry Cosmetics by Amway International, official and exclusive makeup partner for the Philippine Fashion Week, I was able to see Calcarrie models sport beautiful neutrals, softly lined eyes ( I’m guessing they’re pencil-lined ), and washes of green, yellow, and fuschia on the eyelids. Nothing too wild, everything sophisticated and classy. Just the way to start Philippine Fashion Week! I look forward into exploring and checking out Artistry Cosmetics, I’d be posting about it in the coming entries!
First, let’s see some Fashion Week Opening pictures!

Everyone excited for Project Runway? Phoebe scores a picture with her idol, the sultry green-eyed beauty, supermodel Teresa Herrera, who will also be hosting the show. Gotta love her trench coat.
During the fashion show, I kept on taking pictures of Ford Supermodel Charo Ronquillo, dubbed as the “Kate Moss of Asia.” I could not help but run to her as the fashion show ended, to have a picture taken with her! Okay, I know now, never to wear flats during a fashion show. Lookame! I looked like a midget there. Hahaha!
Anyway, here’s a little something for my beloved readers! I’ve labored to take pictures for you during the opening ceremony’s fashion show! I definitely love some of the creations! Here ya go!
Hopa ya love it!
